Ballet Perler Beads

My kids love to dance! My daughter especially is in love with ballet. So she created these awesome ballet perler beads!

Perler Beads

One of my favorite things about perler beads is that they are so good for developing fine motor skills! Having to pick up the small beads and place them in the right spots is an excellent way to have fun and to help your child develop all at the same time. 

It’s also a wonderful activity for helping to increase focus and concentration.

How to Make Perler Beads

If you’ve never made perler beads before you need to start by getting together everything you need. 

You will need a peg board to design your perler beads on. And you will need the actual perler beads that are made specifically for this project. 

Then use the perler bead pictures below to design your ballet perler beads. You can see from the pics how many individual beads there are. Simply count the beads to know where to place them on the board.

Once you’ve placed all of your perler beads in place you need to iron them to fuse them together

Perler beads can be made for any topic and any holiday! Some of the perler beads we have made are Ninja Turtle Perler Beads, Pokemon Perler Beads, Minecraft Perler Beads, Perler Bead Magnets, Halloween Perler Beads, Autumn Perler Beads, Christmas Perler Beads, and Easter Perler Beads!

Now that you have everything gathered together that you need, let’s get started making some ballet perler beads!

Perler Bead Ballet Shoes

Aren’t these ballet shoes adorable?! My daughter made these based on a pic that we found. They are a little larger, so they take more time to make. But they are totally worth it! They are so cute!


My oldest daughter designed this perler bead creation all by herself! Isn’t it really cute?!

Perler Bead Ideas

This perler bead ballerina was made based on the perler bead dancer found here. We did however change the coloring on our ballerina. My daughter wanted her ballerina to be wearing purple and to have dark hair:)


Ok, now this ballerina might be a little easier to make, but it’s one that I’m really impressed with! That’s because my five year old designed this pattern all by herself! Didn’t she do a great job?!

Cute Perler Bead Ideas

This perler bead idea is another one that my oldest daughter designed all by herself! And I think that it’s one of my personal favorites:) So cute!

And those are 5 ballet perler beads that your little ballerina will love! I’m sure that we will be making more in the future, so I will add them here as we do;)

I hope you and your kids have as much fun creating them as we did! 

Be sure to come back and leave me a comment letting me know which ones your kids decide to make!
